New poetry collection forthcoming!
I'm excited to announce that my newest poetry collection, Sleeping with Demons, has been picked up for publication by Finishing Line Press and will be available in 2023.
This collection examines the intersection of mental health and womanhood. In it, I use different personas, styles, lenses, and forms to explore topics such as gender, sexuality, violence and violence against women, the generational transmission of dysfunction, obstacles to equality, and more.
Of course, I can only offer my own voice, and I can only draw on my own real and imagined experiences. As such, rather than speaking for all women, the works in the book ultimately reveal one version of this story.
Still, I'm pleased with the poems, which I feel offer an opportunity for personal exploration and shifts in perspective. And I'm happy to contribute in a small way to such an important topic.
